Today is defensive tackle Cedric ThorntonPDTShareTweetShareShare49ers 90-in-90: DT Cedric ThorntonAt one point in his career, Cedric Thornton was solid depth for an NFL team. He didn’t have the stats that wow’d you over, but he wasn’t an awful fill-in defensive tackle. At this point in his career, after retiring once already, Thornton is coming to the San Francisco 49ers, a team that has a very young defensive line. They have Solomon Thomas in a new scheme that will take advantage of him in the interior https://www.49ersfanshop.com/Fred-Warner-Jersey , D.J. Jones, Kentavius Street, and Sheldon Day all ready as solid depth. Can Thornton force one of those guys off and carve out a roster spot? His stats are nothing to write about. His best season came in 2014 where he caused two fumbles and ran one back for a touchdown. He’s only had one season with more than one sack, and that was in 2017 with the Buffalo Bills. He could offer substantial depth if not for the fact he’s been out of football for a year and he’s got a lot of young, draft invested players in front of him. Basic infoAge:30 (turns 31 June 21) Experience: sixth seasonHeight: 6’4 Weight: 290Cap StatusHe signed a one-year $915,000 contract. What to expect in 2019Thornton’s been out of football for a year. That Tarvarius Moore Jersey , combined with his age of 31, limited production in his career, and the youth at the defensive line of the ball makes for a very difficult road to travel. There’s not much he can do that the youngsters can’t and he’s at a point in his career where he’s not worth an investment in development. Expect a veteran defensive tackle who will compete in training camp. If he suits up on gameday, something has gone horribly, horribly wrong. Right now, there’s a hoard of defensive tackles on the roster and limited roster space. It’s hard to envision Thornton being on the 53-man roster. Odds of making the rosterThe tackles are a young group and they have a lot of talent waiting to be unleashed. Thornton is on the wrong side of 30 and trying to get back into a league he retired from a year ago. He’s a Week 4 preseason starter. It will be interesting to see if he lands anywhere in the NFL for 2019. There were 254 players selected during the seven rounds of the 2019 NFL Draft and all of them have now agreed to contracts with the teams that selected them.49ers third-round pick Deebo Samuel was the last one without a deal Kentavius Street Color Rush Jersey , but there were multiple reports that he has agreed to terms on Thursday afternoon. 49ers first-round pick Nick Bosa and Jets first-round pick Quinnen Williams had agreed to deals of their own a little bit earlier in the day.Williams didn’t sign in time for the first practice of Jets camp, but Bosa and Samuel should be on the field with the Niners on Saturday.Samuel caught 62 passes for 882 yards and 11 touchdowns during his final season at South Carolina. Samuel also returned a kickoff for a touchdown for the fourth time in his time with the Gamecocks.The 49ers also drafted Jalen Hurd in the third round and signed Jordan Matthews as a free agent in their offseason bid to improve their receiving corps ahead of what’s shaping up to be a big season for the current regime.
